Rafael Correa, President of Ecuador since January 15, 2007. Correa was a close ally of Hugo Chávez. Ecuador's relationship with the United States has deterriorated considerably in recent years, since Correa took office in Ecuador, mostly due to his growing relationship with Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and Iran. He did not renew United States Southern Command's lease of Eloy Alfaro Air Base in Manta, ending the U.S. presence at this military base in September 2009.
